Pink Saturday Blog Party: Walk my Summer Garden with me

Starting on the Porch
I hope you enjoy my photos.  I just took them tonight.  My garden is nature unabridged (nice way to say not too tidied up).  This year, I had decomposed granite put through out my yard.  It looks like a park in some ways--the greenery really stands out.  I have gone from grass to chips and now to DG.  I recycle and reuse plus I have planted a number of drought tolerant California native plants.
